    First let me say y'all have a great forum with a ton of information. I really didn't research the Yamaha Blaster before picking one up, I was just looking for a bike that my son (12) and I could rebuild but I have been pleasantly surprised with how much of a following this model has. Its a 1998 and Im sure I will have a mountain of questions in the coming weeks and months but just wanted to join up and say hi before I started bombing the boards with ludicrous questions. Thanks for reading my post IMG_1173.JPG IMG_6303.JPG

    Welcome !!!
    Answers are free. Correct ones will cost you :D
    FYI the search function works great on here.
    That doesn't mean you can't ask questions.
    Sometimes it's hard to get the right search term

    I am in the same boat. However I am not a ebay guy. It's hard to decipher what is genuine , knock off etc. I want to build a solid trail rider with my son . Any one have straight forward places to order thumb throttle , carb, a arm rebuild kit ( bushings etc ) or extended kit , axle , carrier bearings, new front and rear shock.

    Vitos performance has a-arm bushings and alot of other parts. Rebuilding the stock carb is your best bet.mostly they just need a good disassemble and clean. Parts are seldom needed. Jetsrus has everything you could need for carb parts. They have a good website. There are other places also just look them up.
    As for rear shock the 400ex honda shock is cheap and easy to install with a ken oconner
    Racing bushing kit. For the top.its cheap. Shock works way better than. Blaster shock

    The more I look I dont believe i have a stock carb. Stocks have the pull out choke as where I have a lift lever choke. Any recommendations where to get a "stock" carb. I'm also looking for a banshee axle and hubs. I'll be checking the for sale thread. . .
